Are you someone who hates to admit when you’re wrong?
Not Just Words: How a Good Apology Makes You Braver, Bolder, and Better at Life offers a simple four-step method for improving your relationships. Learn how to convert mistakes into opportunities for growth. Use it with co-workers, family members, lovers, friends and roommates, and even strangers.
Using case studies and anecdotes, the author demonstrates how a sincere and thoughtful apology can transform stuck or damaged relationships, restore confidence, and solve a host of problems that can arise out of human interactions.
Drawing from a variety of spiritual, sociological and psychological principles, Not Just Words illustrates how the expression of regret and remorse has been adopted all throughout history by cultures all over the world. Even without the benefit of cultural or religious grounding, many people today are making amends to improve their relationships, their emotional control, and their lives. The ability to apologize well is a skill that gives readers an edge over peers who are unpracticed in the art of the apology.
I actually had the pleasure of doing the final proofread on this book. I say pleasure because it is an excellent, well-written, thoughtful book on how a simple thing like an honest apology can improve your life and relationships.
